Ready. Set. ACTIVATE.

ACTIVATE transforms iconic Loop alleys into pop-up urban experiences. Combining the talents of Chicago’s most creative minds, the events feature art, music, and more in unique urban settings.

RSVP FOR September 18

We are taking ACTIVATE out of the alley and into the street on September 18! Curator Cheryl Pope will be transforming Wabash Ave. from Monroe to Madison into an all-American varsity aesthetic that includes an astroturf runway, track and field floor, and a suspended t-shirt installation.
